Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has a sprained MCL in his right knee, he said after the Raiders' 24-20 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.

"My knee is banged up," he said.

"I've got a sprained MCL. It just got worse during the week. So I was just trying to come out and play and try to help the team but just didn't feel well today."

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor sprained the knee last week and said it got worse during the week leading up to the Giants game. Pryor added he couldn't get any push off his leg and couldn't explode in the passing game. The only other quarterback on the Raiders' active roster is undrafted rookie Matt McGloin out of Penn State, while fourth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson is on the practice squad. The Raiders worked out veterans David Carr, Trent Edwards and Pat White last month.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 10. Pryor will be fine to play against the Giants. He hasn't thrown a TD in the last two weeks (and has seven interceptions in his last three games), but his rushing yards make him a worthwhile start. He has 260 rush yards in his last three games.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) took full practice reps again Thursday. Pryor will be fine to play against the Giants. He hasn't thrown a TD in the last two weeks (and has seven interceptions in his last three games), but his rushing yards make him a risky but worthwhile start. He has 260 rush yards in his last three games.

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor left in the fourth quarter, and was examined for a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact:

The score was 49-13 at the time, so the Raiders were just being cautious. Matt McGloin replaced Pryor, but it looks like Pryor will will be fine going forward. He said the knee felt stable.

Former Colts general manager Bill Polian had an incredibly revealing statement. Polian said that Terrelle Pryor is the most improved player in the league that he has seen. Pryor has opened everyone’s eyes, demonstrated extreme improvement and given Oakland some optimism he can be its quarterback of the future. Now Oakland did have some interest in Josh Freeman, so Pryor has to continue to play well and prove that he is still improving. But so far, the signs are encouraging. He doesn’t look like an elite quarterback yet, but he does look a lot better than most people around the league expected.

Raiders cut Matt Flynn

Monday, October 7, 2013, 2:42pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Matt Flynn, the quarterback acquired by the Raiders in a trade with the Seahawks this offseason, has been released, according to Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated.

Although the Raiders traded for Flynn with the expectation that he would be their starter this season, he was beaten out in training camp and the preseason by Terrelle Pryor. When Pryor missed a game this season with a concussion, Flynn played so badly that he was demoted from second to third on the depth chart after Pryor returned. And now Flynn isn’t on the Raiders’ depth chart at all.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders also cut fifth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson before the start of the season. Former Penn State QB Matt McGloin is now the Raiders QB2 behind Prior. McGloin was impressive enough in the offseason that this also likely played into the decision to release Flynn. Look for the Raiders to sign a free agent QB at some point. The story mentions Green Bay could be a landing spot for Flynn.

Due to baseball playoffs, Raiders Oct. 6 home game vs. Chargers has been switched from 4:25 pm ET to 11:35 pm ET.

Fantasy Impact:

It's going to put in question Darren McFadden and Terrelle Pryor for next week. While Pryor seems more likely to play, at this point you could be risking points if their statuses aren't clearer heading toward Sunday.

Friday, September 27, 2013, 7:19pm

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 4. Adam Schefter reported that Pryor is unlikely to play against the Redskins, though HC Dennis Allen said on Friday that Pryor just has to pass one more test on Saturday to play, so hopefully we'll have more clarity tomorrow. Matt Flynn would be a high-risk Sneaky Start against a very shaky Redskins pass defense. If he can play, Pryor would be a top 12 QB given the matchup.
